Why do I slice my driver?

A slice shot is caused by a poor grip and setup, an outside-to-in downswing path and an open clubface. An outside-to-in path occurs when the golfer reaches too far on the downside, bringing the club down to the right of the ball (outside), relative to the target line.

What is a golf slice and what is a hook?

Nine times out of ten a slice (curving right) shot is caused because you have a swing that is out-to-inward in trajectory. The club face meets the ball more to its side, which creates an abnormal spin. A hook in many cases is simply the opposite, a left-handed hitter with a swing that is in-to-out.

Why do I slice off the tee?

Many people slice because they let their elbows slide inside and thus opening up the club head. By keeping your elbow into your side, you can force your arms to “turnover” and hit the ball flush with the club head. As you bring the club through, be sure to keep your front shoulder straight or facing toward the hole.
